i have been dying for actions that could send MIDI notes or midi CC messages into a selected track.
NOTE: timing is not an issue for this purpose, as the messages are conditional/control oriented in purpose.

use:

by sending to a track that contains a hardware midi output or a vst, you could build macros that not only control Reaper but also midi controlled equipment...setting up conditions and optimizing workflow. this type of integration would be extremely powerful.

if this is inclear, please allow me to clarify or give some examples of use...

instead of having thousands of midi actions (all note ons, note offs, cc messages and values) i'm picturing a reaconsole type of scenario where the user must input what messages he would like sent and call them accordingly...

best wishes
nym

Sysex for instance. I've seen this mentioned a few times.
The midi parts as specified along with their destination ports should be marked as manual or auto. If auto it would be sent automatically on opening project. Else prompted for. Also global switch for auto send sysex.
I don't remember this kind of thing to be sent directly to a midi channel. Just to the port. Don't know why anybody would want to send notes?

Conceptually picture a grid.
Sysex String | Destination Port | Auto/Manual|

as i was attempting to illustrate in my original post, one would want to send notes/cc data to control settings on external hardware.-

+1 - I'd really like this functionality to.

Basically I'd like to send a midi note message to a midi output. This way I could control presets on RME's TotalMix.

hey guys, this is doable but a making custom JS effects would be straight forward (and there sould be some VST in the wild that propose such features.. for ex: ReaControlMIDI can send custom SysEx messages - on playback start though)

yes, definitely, but js/vst wouldn't be able to be used in custom action chains/assigned to hotkeys...

ok, I added the flowing stuff in r617 (will be available in the next SWS version):

Added media file slot actions:
+SWS/S&M: Play media file in selected tracks, slot n - where 'n' is in [1; 8],
customizable in the S&M.ini file (up to 99 slots)
+SWS/S&M: Clear media file slot...

there's no GUI for media file slots but you can define them just by running the "Play media file in selected tracks" action: a file browser is displayed if no file is defined for this slot.

Media file slots are saved in the S&M.ini file in the section [MediaFiles].
The number of slots is also configurable in this file.


I think this reply this reply to this FR: you can define your own .mid file slots. It is a bit more opened as it will also work with audio files (wav, wavpack, etc..)
=> ok to close the FR?

Errr.. how do you STOP the file playing guys? ;)

I just added a pink noise sample to slot 1 for quick k-metering setting up but was hoping there would be a "stop" action too! ;) lol

Was going to create a "cycle action" for it.

A GUI will be soon available for medial file slots (i.e. new item "Media files" in the top right dropdown box of the Resources view)
.. and also stop actions (since some people here don't share my sense of humor :)
